Richmond County sheriff’s investigators are searching for license plates, keys and a vehicle taken in several thefts Thursday night.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Sean Cochran, four license plates were taken from vehicles at Creighton Laircey Co. One has since been recovered.

Employees at Bobby Jones Ford on Wrightsboro Road also discovered that a 2012 white Ford F-150 crew cab and eight set of keys to incomplete police cars were missing. The police cars were not taken.

Authorities believe the thieves might be attempting to use the stolen plates on the stolen vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1020.
